GDOT to approves work on Elbert County Roads

The Georgia DOT has now approved Safety improvements to a number of local roads in Elbert county.

According to the Georgia DOT, traffic fatalities in the State have increased by 33% since 2015 and that just over one third of those deaths have happened on local roads throughout the state.

The DOT will also be helping to fund the improvements using the Off-System Safety Program The Department is addressing off-system safety throughout the state with 16 awards for signing and pavement marking upgrades at over 475 locations on local roads in communities throughout Georgia. The $7 million in funds associated with these awards are part of Georgia DOT’s FY 2017 Off-System Safety (OSS) Program, which focuses on low-cost safety improvements that are likely to reduce the frequency and severity of crashes on “off-system” city and county routes.

As part of the project the Georgia DOT has announced that Off-system signing and pavement marking upgrades will be made at 32 separate locations throughout Elbert County in the coming months.
